A great HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! I’m about to step over that 7th decade threshold myself and have learned that every birthday is a great gift.

I hope it stops snowing long enough for you to go out and celebrate.

Happy birthday :)

I think Martin should add a birthday date in the user data and have the system send us notes based on our buddy list with few days notice. Let me to start a topic on that.

Have a great birthday

Happy birthday Dick. You like like you enjoy life. Shoveling that snow must keep you fit (none down under at the moment). Heres to many more years of woodworking.
